JFF - Week 11 - Star(s)


The JFF shapes theme continues and this week Von is asking for a star.  I finger painted this canvas a while ago and hammered in 6 small nails.  I added an image, which I was tempted to cut into a star shape but then changed my mind!!! I threaded yellowish hemp around the nails to create a star.

Great Canvas Sam. Thanks for the inspiration. I have noticed you use the Eco paints. How do you find them ie., fluidity and coverage??
Regards Florence.

I found this very moving when you first showed it to the team. When you gave it to me for my Birthday well it thrilled me. Need to find somewhere special to display it now. Thank you Sam it really is gorgeous. XOXO Zoe

This is one of my favourite pieces of yours Sam - it's so striking. I can't say it's because of this or that, it just IS!

Sam this is a stunner love your sophisticated finger painting and very clever star, I think you were right not to cut the image in a star shape.
Have fun with Von at the " friendly" plastic class.
